Fallen Rider, Fort Wayne, IN

I didn't know him, but apparently just about everyone else in town did. Everyone, ride safe...

Apparently the woman that started sobbing was him mom; one of my riding friends said that his mom was right behind him when this happened.

Re: Fallen Rider, Fort Wayne, IN

Sorry to hear about the horrible accident.

I read the article and here is what I took away from it:
Rider was traveling at a high rate of speed WHILE popping a wheelie.
Rider was not wearing a helmet.

A good reminder for us all to:
A. Ride responsibly
B. AGATT
